Ahead of Wednesday night's latest Sky Bet Championship clash, Reds striker Carlton Morris addressed the media to help preview the fixture.

With all the furore in the media the last couple of days surrounding the proposed European Super League, it was the first thing addressed when our number 14 spoke with the media at Oakwell this afternoon. 

Carlton isn’t comfortable with the idea, suggesting there are no positives and that anything that affects the current league system should be emphatically rejected. 

He told us: “I’ve been listening to the radio and watching the news, and I just think that if it’s something that’s going to have a detrimental effect on our league pyramid it should be a simple, concise no.

“It needs stopping at source pretty quickly.

“The lads were all watching Gary Neville on the bus back from Coventry the other day and were all nodding along. He summed it all up perfectly I feel. 

“It’s hard to see anything positive in this idea but our focus has to remain on Barnsley and what we are trying to achieve here, but it is a hot topic and I understand the fans’ concern especially.”

Last time out at the weekend, the Reds fell to a first away defeat since January, going down 2-0 away to Coventry City.

The big man believes the quick opportunity to put that one to bed, by going straight into a Yorkshire derby is all the motivation required for the Reds.

“It was a disappointing result, but that’s football and it’s never smooth sailing.” He explained.

“We have a quick chance to get back out there and put in a better performance. 

“I’m here to serve the club, to serve the gaffer and I’m happy for him to use me however best he sees fit. The results are difficult to argue with, let’s be honest.

“I am a product of people I surround myself with and this club has good people within it, we are a hungry group of guys and we all know what we’re aiming for here.”

It’s the Terriers away from home on Wednesday evening, a club embroiled in a battle to retain their second-tier status for much of the 20/21 campaign.

Morris knows it will present its challenges, but is confident that if Barnsley can start well, they can get back to winning ways.

“Huddersfield will create their own problems for us, I’m sure. It’s a competitive game being a derby and we have to go there and get back to winning ways.

“The fans are excited and I know the players are looking to get straight back on the horse. 

“We play with such an intensity, and we love playing this way. But we need a fast start on Wednesday night.”
